    • Nice to hear that your issue has solved. For your internet explorer disappeared issue, might be Internet explorer shortcut has deleted accidentally. so please try to create that shortcut on your desktop, if that way doesn’t solve that issue then you have to reinstall Internet Explorer.

  2. I just wanted to say how helpful this was. I’d downloaded Dalesearch by accident and spent ages trying to get rid off the thing without any success, but after reading this I’d sorted it out in like 2 minutes. Thanks
